Why isn't this excellent place ranked higher

We were puzzling why this place was not ranked in the top 5 in Fajardo. We have been here 3 times over the last couple of years and have always been pleased. Looking at the less flattering reviews, it is possible they can get crowded, but the times we have been the service has been impeccable... read more

The asopao was amazing. One of the best dishes I have ever tasted, I wanted to swim in the broth. The service was great and the view was wonderful as well. Laid back and fun.

I brought my family to this restaurant when we found out Di Yukas was closed. It was a great diversion. The chorizo sausgae tapas plate was a starter and the entire table couldn't get enough. We all had wonderful entrees, but in hind sight I would've stuck to the huge assortment of tapas plates. The music was a lot of... More

The location is close to Las Casitas. The restaurant is clean and the servers are friendly. We ordered the plantain balls, mushroom bread and croquettes. The plantain balls were not that good but the other two were excellent although the portions were small. Skirt steak was very good, tender and well seasoned. The seafood mofongo was horrible. It did not... More

Puerto Rican seafood and tapas are a match made in heaven in my book. Excellent menu, helpful and attentive staff. Try the fried plantain balls, chorizo, and a fresh margarita. You won't be disappointed.

We arrived in Fajardo late on a week night and all the restaurants closed at ten. Ole Lelolei still had lights on so we decided to try it. The hostess said the restaurant had been closed for a half hour but welcomed us warmly. We were told we could order whatever we wanted. I had two tapas: shrimp and scallops.... More

They can't even make paella. It's over priced and low quality. The meat had a funny taste. However the service was great and the people were very friendly.

The server was friendly and helpful. Everything we ordered: plantain balls, churrasco mofongo, stuffed chicken with bacon-all tasted great. Outdoor seating was nice too. Prices were a little high but well worth it.
